Rotolight Introduced Anova Pro LED Light at 2016 NAB

Rotolight announced the Anova Pro, an LED studio/location light with revised electronics that is up to 43 percent brighter than the previous generation.

Rotolight said the Anova Pro has a ten percent weight reduction, revised yoke design and a new Flash Sync Trigger input for camera shutter release synchronisation at up to 150 percent of the maximum continuous light output.

The Anova Pro also includes four innovations: CineSFX, Flash Sync, True Aperture Dimming and Designer Fade. The Anova Pro starts at $1499 and is available now for pre-order. The new lights will ship in June.

Anova Pro’s Bi-Color LED system with AccuColor LED Phosphor technology delivers exceptional color rendering (CRI:96+), and a powerful output (up to 6545 Lux at three feet), while using 94 percent less energy than a standard tungsten bulb.

It now features dual controls for fast, tunable color and brightness control, along with an accurate color temperature display (CCT), DMX and V-Lock battery operation as standard.

Wi-Fi control will also be available on Anova Pro “Air” models, which will be available in the fourth quarter.

Rotolight said CineFX provides an arsenal of customizable lighting effects for television and feature film applications on set or location. They include strobe, lightning, fire, cycle, throb, police, TV, spin, weld, spark, film, neon and gunshot.

The light includes wired remote trigger functionality and wireless control (WI-FI models only), along with rolling shutter compensation.

Flash Sync and remote triggering allows Anova Pro to be integrated into a traditional photography workflow, while providing an accurate modeling light, along with control of flash power/duration color temperature and offset.

True aperature dimming calculates and displays the correct aperture (F-Stop) for a subject at a given distance, eliminating the need for metering. Designer Face mode provides custom fade up/fade down effects for DSLR videographers and creative cinematographers, reducing time required in post production.
